Flames acquire Huselius from Panthers
The Calgary Flames gave a boost to its offence on Friday, acquiring forward Kristian Huselius from the Florida Panthers for defenceman Steve Montador and centre Dustin Johner.
Huselius, who scored 43 goals in his first two NHL seasons, was passed over by the league's 29 other teams after the Panthers placed him on waivers earlier this week.
The 27-year-old winger, with just five goals and eight points in 24 games, is making $1.216 million this season.
Montador, 25, has played in 94 careerNHL games, registering nine points and 201 PIM. He appeared in 20 of the Flames' 26 contests during the 2004 playoffs scoring one goal with two assists, averaging more than 17 minutes of ice time with a plus-4 rating. Montador is making $450,000 this season.
